extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion aid in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass on Sundays, weekdays, and Holy Days, and to the sick and home bound. Training sessions are held throughout the year for new ministers and for those who have moved from another parish and would like to continue their service here.
Lectors have the distinct honor of proclaiming the Word of God at mass. Training sessions for new lectors, or for lectors transferring from another parish, are held throughout the year. Lectors also serve at Holy Day masses and special celebrations of the Liturgy of the Word and at the Liturgy of the Hours.
The Sacristan is responsible for making sure that all is in order before a liturgy, and that all is back in place following the liturgy. Responsibilities include preparing the sacramental wine and hosts, making sure that the vestments are in order, and putting out the goblets, patens and purificators before mass. Sacristans are also needed for funerals and other liturgies that are celebrated throughout the year.
